Your backbone is one of the strongest bones in your body

Healing an aching back is thorny! Your feeling about your back ailment plays a significant part in how fast you recover.

It's important to get up, walk and move, when you have back pain, but only after you do the following,

  • Have Emergency Medical Care, if you're injured in a car accident or a slip and fall mishap!
  • Get an MRI, and a CAT scan to detect broken bones or fractures.
  • Get a Chiropractic evaluation and get checked out by a Neurologist for subluxations.

Your Neurologist may direct you to rest for a while and suggest you apply ice packs and warm packs on your back. He will most probably prescribe medication for inflammation.

Continue to see a Chiropractor regularly and find a Licensed Massage Therapist to help break up the knots in your back.

Healing your aching back pain is terribly tricky! Your attitude about your pain plays a significant role in how well you recover. A positive attitude with the willingness to do the exercises tailored to your back pain and the problem is a key factor.

Once you feel better it is necessary to remember to KEEP MOVING. Don't stop doing the things you love. If you stop moving, you may feel depressed and this will only aggravate your back pain.

Continue your Wellness Plan by getting regular Chiropractic adjustments, massages, acupuncture treatments, and exercise according to your ability.

If you are able to work or volunteer it is advantageous to work. You'll feel productive and this may help you to forget about your rear pain for a while.

Hopefully, you are not in need of a back operation, if you are, then, please do what you must to GET WELL and try hard to remain positive!

Remember, when you're suffering from Back PAIN it's important to Keep Moving about with a beneficial Healing Attitude to feel less pain. Build up your shoulder, neck and leg muscles with gentle weight-bearing exercises.

Healing Back Pain: The Mind-Body Connection by John E. Sarno is an impressive book to read if you're searching for mental back pain relief. The way you think about your pain has a lot to do with the amount of back pain you feel.

Dr. Sarno will help you and convince you to think about your back pain differently. One method used is to sit on a chair even if you feel pain. He will show you how to reduce your pain dramatically with some simple exercises you can do at home.

    Your right nextstopjupitor, yoga is the best form of exercise for back pain. It stretches the limbs and relaxes at the same time reducing stress.

    Thank you Dr. Romeo. I've been under chiropractic care for the past 6 years. Chiropractors worked a miracle in my life after an accident at work by helping me avoid a back operation.

    I am proactive in doing stretching exercises and take regular walks. In New York and Florida Chiropractors are easy to find and they are filled with patients. I am sorry it is not easy in Reno.

    You are certainly right about "keep moving."

    An MD or DO consult is certainly the right thing to do as well.

    But at least in Reno, it's hard to find a good chiropractor that doesn't want to become a primary care physician. And to make matters worse, they rarely (I've had a total of 1 chiropractor in over 15 years of practice) send me their treatment notes. Who do you think I refer to?????

    Thaks for the Hub.
